Sophomore filly won Louisiana Legends Mademoiselle Stakes June 5 at Evangeline Downs.
Two-time Horse of the Year California Chrome sired his first black-type winner June 5 when his 3-year-old daughter Cilla drew away to win the $70,000 Louisiana Legends Mademoiselle Stakes at Evangeline Downs.
From her sire’s first crop, Cilla is an earner of $143,500 and holds a 3-0-2 record in eight starts. Last year at 2, she placed in the Frizette Stakes (G1) at Belmont Park. She was bred in Louisiana by her trainer, Brett Brinkman, and owner, P. Dale Ladner.
Joel Dominguez guided Cilla in the 5 1/2-furlong Mademoiselle. The bay filly was fifth early before pulling ahead for a 4 1/4 length victory on the sloppy, sealed track. The final time was 1:03.74.
